All these social spaces are well lit and have low windowsills providing open views of the beautiful well stocked gardens even from a seated position.
The rear gardens have raised flowerbeds, a sensory area, summerhouse and extensive inter-linking paths. There is also an extensive terraced area with covered seating offering a pleasant environment to relax in the summer months.
Internally attention has been taken to reduce the window heights to allow those seated or in bed to benefit from the views of the garden. The soft furnishings are bright and cheerful and have been chosen to create a homely atmosphere.
